1957 Jaguar XKSS 722
This is the only XKSS that was initially sold to an owner in England. It was "road tested" by Basil Boothroyd for the satirical Punch magazine in London, with illustrations by motoring cartoonist Brockbank. In 1958 it was bought by Colonel Ronnie Hoare of the Ferrari Importers Marionello Cocessionaires. From 1960 to 1962 it was owned by Bob Gibson-Jarvie of the finance company UDT. After an accident in 1963 the car was rebuilt in D-type form and raced by Bill Rigg until sold to amateur racer Nigel Moores. In the late 80s it was returned to its original XKSS specification and in 1989 it was acquired for the Louwman collection of the Dutch National Motor Museum at the Hague.
